Take Cover: Our Top 10 Army Essentials

Taking inspiration from the autumn/ winter ’12 catwalks where olive-tones took centre-stage at the likes of Burberry and Alexander Wang, the high-street is a-wash with army-inspired styles. Vintage-looking pieces with studs and pocket detailing are a great way of toughening-up pretty slips and floral dresses to create an easy autumnal look, and for a sleeker, more paired-down outfit opt for smart utilitarian shirts or straight-leg chinos. let the khaki trend play up your evening look too; Topshop’s beautifully embellished playsuit and Love’s mesh maxi skirts add a subtle, understated glamour. Not satisfied with the high-street’s goods? For the genuine article, head down to your local Army Surplus store for a unique style steal.
